stevens sent repeated cable to washington about security fears, even on september 1-11, the day he and three others were killed. why did the white house wait so long? what impact will the new documents have in the final debate? >> they're going to impact the final result. certainly it will be part of the final debate. look, now -- the president wants to play semantics on this, whether you put a word here or word there. fundamentally the mistake this administration made was trying to pretend and tell the world that terrorism was quelled in north africa and across the dangerous spots of the world. it's rampant and reared its ugly head and the administration is trying to hide that. when poor embassador stevens sent cables saying it's real, it's here, they shoved him under the table. shame on the president and shame on the state department. >> can we expect mitt romney to be aggressive about the benghazi it attack and ask about the video? >> i don't know what he's going to ask him but i will say he was kind of shocked when the president lied about having referred to the attack at a rea

of ams am -- ambassador chris stevens here is how he wrapped up his resolve. >> obama: no act of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation. alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. >> bill: right. so the idea that then these republicans -- i understand the romney campaign because you know, they were so embarrassed by this whole thing because mitt romney made a fool of himself. i understand but for the media to give it any credence whatsoever, for the media to report on it, as abc news and cbs did last night and i'm sorry -- i saw cbs and nbc. i don't know what abc did. they probably did the same thing they are irresponsible. totally, totally irresponsible. the fact that president obama did not say the words peter what happened yesterday in benghazi was an act of terror. i mean do you have to say those specific words in order to get credit for calling it an act of terror? no! come on! let's not parse every single word. we're not third graders. again, i understan
. this is where ambassador chris stevens slept. part of a small sweep also meant to be a makeshift safe room. here on the floor between the bed and the chair is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located hours after the attack first began, separated by smoke from his security detail. the u.s. initially said the assault was a result of a demonstration turned violent. >> putting together the best information that we had available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. >> reporter: that was not the case. the state department is now saying that there was nothing unusual prior to the attack. at 8:30 p.m., everything was calm. and just over an hour later, armed men launched their assault. libyan officials say they warned the americans on many occasions about the growing threat from extremists. the compound
a mile away asked for permission to help ambassador chris stevens there and they were told to stand down twice. they ignored those orders and they went anyway by the time they got there the compound was under fire. it was on fire, as well. they evacuated those who remained. they went back to the annex. they then requested military back-up. they were denied. hours later when it was all over former navy seals woods and glen doherty and sean smith and chris stevens all were dead. the president was asked about all of this. molly henneberg is live in washington with that part of the story. >> molly: he was asked twice about it. three pleas for help being denied as the embassy was under attack. he didn't answer directly but did say his administration is trying to find out what happened that day and also track down the people who carried out the attack. >> nobody wants to find out more what happened than i do. we wanted to to make sure we get it right. particularly i have made commitment to the families as well as the american people. we're going to bring those folks to justice. we'll gather fa
to the killing of the great ambassador like ambassador chris stevens. >> look, libya is an important example. after the tragedy of september 11th, you saw tens and thousands of libyans marching in the street in honor of chris stevens. they valued his offer in engaging in the world and democracy, particularly for young democracy is more than just going to the ballot box. that's the very first requirement. we have to set up a simple structure, a court system. >> how does the american administration get the kind of information that chris and others are asking for in relation to a tragedy like this when the government is basically not formed. it's formulating before our very eyes? >> we have to help it. we have to set up structures. we have to help them set up an intelligence gathering system. there's a whole structure of civil society. >> and don't you think, though, if i may be and we were not literally enough in describing the conditions inside a place like benghazi. it's because we weren't clear enough in terms of the problems that occurred in the nation that is uprising, that is literally r

about who knew what and when. the attack on 9/11 killed chris stevens and three other americans. the emails were sent to the fbi, the white house, other government agencies. one of them was sent while this attack was still underway. our reporter ellise is joining us live. talk a little about these emails, what they reveal. one of them including the claim of responsibility of the attack by an islamist group. >> that's right, suzanne. these are really the first communication we've seen from the u.s. embassy in tripoli. as they were reporting it real-time. now, the first e-mail was from about 4:00 p.m. eastern time which would be 10:00 p.m. in libya, and the subject is u.s. mission in benghazi under attack. the embassy in tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots, explosions have been heard as well. ambassador stevens, who was currently in benghazi and four other mission personnel are in the compound safe haven. now, a half hour later the embassy updates and says that the firing has stopped and the compound has been cleared and that a response team is on site of try
that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others. more than three weeks after the september 11th terrorist attack. the fbi had chosen not to go to benghazi until now, due to security concerns, raise iing questions about the integrity of the investigation. right before the show, i spoke to michael birnbaum by phone. >> reporter: they looked around here a little more than an how areu and then had gone to a market in town to look for potentially stolen goods. >> you've been in the consulate. what did you find? >> reporter: i found a gutted and loot eed series of building. it's burned out. it's empty now. it's not being overrun bye-byestabye-by bystanders. they let me look around. there are documents scattered all around. there are documents in the bedroom where ambassador stevens was staying. there are lots of documents and files in what appears to have been the security office for the mission. and among those files are records, sensitive records of administrative files, personnel files of libyans working with the americans, records of security protocols for what to do in case of em
.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. the suspects reportedly both to your tunisian nationals carrying fake passport. >> intelligence officials are keenly interested in these two detainees. all this as the state department explained today why it took the fbi so long to set foot inside the compound and annex where ambassador stevens and the other three americans were killed almost a month ago. we were working with the government of libya for permission for the fbi team and the dod team to travel there. we did seek permission for them as well as for the landing of the aircraft. and we worked to get them the appropriate vehicle. so we have been working through all these. >> fox news has confirmed in email exchange back in may on which ambassador stevens had been included the state department rejected requests from u.s. diplomats in libya to keep in the country, a state department airplane. a spokesman for the secretary of state said the airplane had been brought into libya when commercial flights will ceased and was returned to iraq once such flights resumed in libya. analysts c
for the assault that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. elise, you just interviewed secretary clinton. what exactly did she tell you? >> reporter: well, isha, you know there's been so much political back and forth in washington over who was responsible for the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans and even last week in the vice presidential debate, when asked about those additional requests for security that were denied, the vice president said we didn't know anything about that, and secretary clinton when i asked her about that, she said listen, this is a state department functn. the state department finds the embassy security for embassies and consulates around the world and that's my state department. i have 60,000 employees and i take responsibility, isha. i think she was trying to take a little bit of the heat off the white house at this time when an election is coming up and also trying to remind people that hey, four americans died, including an ambassador, and we need to stop this blame game. she said she doesn't want any more
. it was a terrorist attack. u.s. ambassador chris stevens, three other americans were killed. security at the time of the attack was modest at best. the white house has come under attack for not providing better protection. just a short time ago this evening, secretary of state clinton traveling in peru, said the buck stops with her and she takes the blame for the assault. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department. 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decision that are made by security professionals. they're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision. >> her statement, of course comes just hours before the second presidential debate. first i want to bring in cnn's foreign affairs reporter elise lav it who had the interview. this is the first time that secretary clinton talked about that night in depth, what else did she tell you? >> you're right. the first time she talked about the attack, and she talked about the harrowing
, last month. as you know, heavily armed militants stormed the compound on september 11th. chris stevens and three other americans were killed. security at the embassy was modest at best. just a short time ago, this evening, secretary of state hillary clinton traveling in peru said the buck stops with her and she takes the blame for the assault. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department, 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. they're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision. >> her statement comes hours before the second presidential debate. i want to bring in elise who had that interview. this is the first time secretary clinton talked about that night in depth. what else did she tell you? >> anderson, you're right. it's the first time she talked about the attack and she talked about the harrowing night she and owe state department officials, the long many hour o
report eed will testify th chris stevens who was killed during the attack wanted the security time to stay even longer. that request was turned down. the state department says the 16 member security team was based in tripoli and would not have made a difference at the time of the attack in benghazi. the president's top counter-terrorism official expected to arrive in libya today to make his own assessment of what happened there. >>> we're two days out now from the first and only vice-presidential debate between joe biden and paul ryan. it will take place in kentucky. democrats counting on a strong performance from the vice president who has been hold up for days studying in his hometown of wilmington, delaware. the vice president is receiving counsel from obama campaign senior adviser david axelrod and has done two mock debates. vice president biden also reportedly been reading "young guns," remember that? a book co-written by paul ryan. congressman ryan is in florida this morning where he's lined up for a full day of debate prep. yesterday the republican vice-presidential nominee
. by then the attackers already had set fire to the building where ambassador chris stevens was hiding. that account directly conflicts the description of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. this was on september 16th, five days after the attack. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copy cat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> that from the obama administration again on september the 16th. yesterday, october the 9th, the state department says there were no protests outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi. today congress is set on to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether or not the administration in
because there was no demonstration. chris stevens said good-bye to the turkish ambassador at 8:30 at night and there was nothing happening. there is real-time videos that were being sent back about this attack. it was clear it was not a demonstration. it went on for seven hours. and on this whole issue of the military and where they were, september 11th should have been a key day. we should have had forces on alert. we should have had f-16s. we should have had other forces on alert because we know september 11 is a day of great tension throughout that part of the world. finally again, the warnings, chris stevens's last message to the white house or back to the state department before he died was his concerns about the lack of security. what did the president know about the attacks of october and april that were attacks on the embassy? why did the british close the consulate? why did the british close their consulate? why did the red cross leave? why did lieutenant colonel woods say we were the last flag standing? because of their inappropriate failure to act because of information they had
stevens and three other americans were killed at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, mr. romney rushed out a statement in which he accused the president of, quote, sympathizing with those who waged the attack. of course that was blatantly political. republicans cooked up a dishonest talking point, claiming officials created a coverup on the attack by initially leaking the libya attack to protests over an anti muslim video. >> i don't think that they should have sent their u.n. ambassador out five days later to say that this was from a spontaneous mob reacting to a youtube video. >> i think you need to ask yourself, why didn't we know five days later when the ambassador to the united nations. >> then why send susan rice out saying that this was a spoon tan yous reaction, not reacting to a youtube video? >> now we know the truth is, obama administration officials were repeating what the cia experts were telling them. "the washington post" writes, quote, the cia documents supported susan rice's description of the benghazi attacks but the romney campaign doesn't care. they are playing poli
when ambassador stevens lost his life he was torteured. >> i have reports that the body was torteured. it is not a pleasant thing to talk about. and seals that were there were not part of the security force and on a different mission and the seals run to the sound of fire. they did their job and duty and were great americans and unfortunately it was not a spontanous attack when ambassador rice said it was a spontanous even and our relationship with israel and never been better. that is misleading. our relationship with israel is strained . they are preparing to do a unilateral attack and our position over seas is dangerous and fragile. >> brian: we understand that intercepts show groups were talking to each other and bragging after the killing of four americans, including the ambassador and two navy seals and it makes it seem that an operation is under foot and it seems there is a special operation to go get these goys. would you support that? >> absolutely. you have to show leadership and policy of appeasement of apology doesn't work. our friends over seas understand strength and ame
out and interact with the people. ambassador stevens was very friendly. he did not want to travel a run with a large entourage, he wanted to connect with the people. in the to balance that. there is risk involved with that. i think what happened is there's not adequate protection in place for the ambassador. for the level of threat. host: you mentioned eric nordstrom. he testified this week, he was the former regional security officer in libya, the ring that took place, you can see it on c- span. what else did you learn from guest: this:the complexity of the situation -- guest: it was an evolving situation, we rely heavily on the host nation partners to provide a lot of security to support us. and try to figure out who was a friend of the united states. was a former khadafy regime official. it was very difficult and very challenging. and the capability for libyans, the wanted to do that. but the capability to provide that was lacking. host: eric nordstrom testified this week. here is what yet to say about security and then got a. >> for me and my staff, it was abundantly clear we
. there are now four justices in their 70s, route bader ginsberg and steven breyer were appointed by president clinton. scalia and kennedy are both 76 appointed by reagan. when asked presidential politics do not impact their decisions about when they will retire but it's highly likely the next president is going to have the opportunity to make multiple nominations. weeks ago governor romney said this about the supreme court, quote i hope to appoint justices for the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution and it would be my preference that they reverse row v wade. many watchers say a second term for president obama would reach further left to future nominees. >> he may reach out for someone who doesn't have a track record for judicial opinions. someone who is serving in politics who doesn't have that long pedestrian today kraoe of writing jew judicial decisions, but who the president will be fairly confident will share his positions on liberal issues. >> it doesn't matter how much the president vets any tomorrow knee, once on the bench it's a lifetime appointment and they as
chris stevens cited as the highlight of his time in the country. achieving genuine democracy and broad-based growth will be a long and difficult process. we know that from our own history. more than 235 years after our own revolution, we are still working toward that more perfect union. so one should expect setbacks along the way, times when some will surely ask if it was all worth it. but going back to the way things were in december 2010 isn't just undesirable, it is impossible. so this is the context in which we have to view recent events and shape our approach going forward. and let me explain where that leads us. now, since this is a conference on the maghreb, that's where i'll focus. because, after all, that's where the arab revolution started and where an international coalition helped stop a dictator from slaughtering his people and where just last month we saw such disturbing violence. but let's look at what's actually happening on the ground. especially in light of recent events. we have to, as always, be clear-eyed about the threat of violent extremism. a year of democratic
